Christians, Muslims, and Jews to Boycott Lowe’s Over ‘Bigotry’

Christians, Muslims, and Jews alike are speaking out against Lowe’s Hardware Store’s decision to pull advertisement from the TLC television show “All American Muslim.” On Saturday, demonstrations in front of various Lowe’s locations across the country will seek to raise awareness against the perceived bigotry behind the chain’s decision.

The Florida Family Association contacted companies to stop advertising on the TLC show. According to FFA, 75 companies pulled their ads from the Dec. 11 and 12 episodes of “All-American Muslim.” The group has chosen not to list the names of the companies because of the “intense scrutiny by opponents.”

The Rev. Charles Williams of Historic King Solomon Baptist Church in Detroit called FFA a “fringe group trying to spread hatred.” “There’s a misperception that these fringe groups represent the ideals and perspectives of conservatives and Christians. They are not the authority on Christianity and do not have the moral compass to be one,” he said. (More at The CPost)

I read this last week and thought it was hilarious,  

David Caton of the Florida Family Association appeared on The Janet Mefferd Show yesterday where he mostly played the victim over the national controversy that was started by his group’s pressure campaign against advertisers on TLC’s All-American Muslim. He said that his group started the pressure campaign before the show even went on the air because he couldn’t “wait and see” what impact the “propaganda” would have.  (David Caton Says He Had to Stop All-American Muslim Because It Was “The First Show of its Kind”)

  1. It begins and ends with nationalism, or in other words, idolatry.

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
